My latest animated short is just a very quick addition to the series. I wanted to get a Halloween themed short in there and luckily managed to find a bit of time in the schedule and a few late nights to get it together in time for the big day.
My latest animated short in the stripped back 'short' shorts style. I've had some really good feedback on these shorts, specifically for the animation and the tight timing of the comedy. It seems the basic nature of the illustration work is adding quite a lot to the feel of them. So, I'm planning a few more, along with some new tutorials to cover the animation process.
Here's another animation I decided to make in the same style as 'Misadventure in Time'. I've been receiving some positive feedback since that last short, so I'm experimenting with this process in particular and plan to do a few more. Aside from being a lot quicker on the produciton side of things than my regular 'fully illustrated' creations, this style also forces me to conectrate more on the movement than the visuals. However, I do like to add a bit of VFX in there too...
Here's my latest animated short created using Adobe CC. I went for a simpler vector style this time for two reasons - one, because I wanted to change up the style a bit on my personal shorts and, two, because I have so little time these days due to client work and family life, I need to keep the channel alive with some more regular output!

My 'LeeDanielsART Shorts' channel has just passed 100,000 views! I had always planned to get somehting huge put together for when this happened, but unfortunately (...fortunately) I have been too busy with client animation work.
So, here is a little piece I put together instead - 'Catch'
Due to a very busy client animation schedule this year, I have not had as much time as I would have liked to work on my personal webseries' and shorts. So, in light of this, I've decided to start producing some 'short' shorts, to help keep the momentum up on my channel (which is just about to hit 100,000 views!)
So, here is the new one: 'A Short Epic'
Here's the new showreel for 2013. This reel covers pretty much everything from 'On the Fly' to the latest 'Jungle Brawl' episode. If you like what you see and you are looking for an animator for your project, please feel free to contact me to discuss your brief.
After another 3 (and a half-ish) months of late nights, early mornings and every other spare minute inbetween, here is episode 2 of my animated webseries 'Jungle Brawll'
I'm already prepping ideas for episode 3 which will be out in the New Year. Although cleint work is taking up most of my calendar, I plan to produce the Illustration, Animation & Audio myself for the foreseeable future.
However, I've had lots of kind offers from people willing to contribute their skills and I'm pretty sure I will utilise some of these contacts down the line. So, if your'e in the industry - whether specialising in visuals or audio - please feel free to drop me a line. I'm always happy to network will fellow creatives to talk over projects or exchange ideas and techniques.
I've been animating for just over 2 years using the Adobe Master Collection and have a bunch of cartoon shorts on various online channels (Youtube/Vimeo/Dailymotion). Since the beginning, I've been working towards a small series of webisodes, trying to decide which character to use.
My character - 'The Blue Chimp' - from my 'Intelligence Test' series has proved the most popular, and so here is a pilot episode for a new cartoon featuring the curmudgeonly ape. Previously he has been seen non-cooperative in a Lab setting, but this time he is back in the jungle and fending off the pursuit of a hunter deployed by the research facility to catch the rare primate.
In the episodes he will be using his jungle surroundings as weapons and ammunition, including some unfortunate jungle critters (collateral damage), battling against the odds with his predator's arsenal of guns and gadgets.
Hope you enjoy!
